How does the Oxygen Sensor OSS-2 Effectively Improve Vehicle Exhaust Pollution Emissions

Jan 06, 2023      View: 490

With the increasing popularity and number of cars, the resulting environmental and energy problems are becoming more and more prominent, and exhaust pollution is becoming more and more worrying.


Automobile exhaust has a great impact on our living environment. There are many chemicals in exhaust that pollute the environment, and as more and more vehicles are on the road, more and more of these chemicals are being produced, along with the problem of environmental pollution. Therefore, it is a major issue to research new technologies to reduce the emission of pollutants from automobile exhaust, and at the same time, the country must also increase its efforts to monitor automobile exhaust emissions to achieve a good living environment.


At this stage, more and more scientists and technicians apply energy-saving and emission-reduction technologies to the new generation of automobiles and try to develop new green power sources. Among them, oxygen sensors can achieve energy saving and emission reduction by monitoring the composition of automobile exhaust gas.


What is an Oxygen Sensor?


An oxygen sensor is a device used to measure the amount of oxygen in the air. The sensor uses an electrochemical method to measure the oxygen level in the air. When a low oxygen level is detected, the sensor sends a signal to alert that the amount of oxygen is decreasing.


The most common application is to measure the oxygen concentration of exhaust gases in internal combustion engines in vehicles such as automobiles, in order to calculate and, if needed, dynamically adjust the air-fuel ratio so that the catalytic converter can work optimally, and also to determine whether the converter is operating properly. Divers also use similar equipment to measure the partial pressure of oxygen in the breathing gas.


Scientists use oxygen sensors to measure respiration or oxygen production and use another method. Oxygen sensors are used in oxygen analyzers and are widely used in medical applications such as anesthesia monitors, respirators, and oxygen concentrators.


Oxygen sensors are also used in low oxygen air fire protection systems to continuously monitor the oxygen concentration in protected spaces.


How Does the Oxygen Sensor OSS-2 Effectively Improve Vehicle Exhaust Pollution Emissions?


Most vehicles still use internal combustion engine power systems, and the complete combustion of fuel has a direct impact on the elimination of power collection exhaust gases. When the air intake is too small, the combustion is insufficient, resulting in the waste of fuel and the production of large amounts of polluting gases, and when the air intake is too large, the power will be affected.

Therefore, the oxygen sensor detects the oxygen content in the exhaust gas and controls the air intake accordingly, thus improving the combustion efficiency and energy conversion rate and reducing pollution from exhaust gas emissions.


The oxygen sensor can generate signals to continuously control the engine valve and fuel injection to approximate the optimal air-fuel ratio, thus realizing the three-way catalytic converter to always maintain the most effective purification state for the combustion and conversion of harmful components in the exhaust gas.


This exhaust gas through the three-way catalytic converter oxidation reduction directly into the atmosphere, the damage to our environment will be much smaller. The following technical engineers recommend an oxygen sensor.
